While the first day of school for students isn’t until Thursday, Sept. 5, incoming kindergartners at Duffield Elementary School recently familiarized themselves with their surroundings and made some new friends during the annual kindergarten playdate event.

Helen B. Duffield Elementary School Principal Lisa Farrell welcomed the parents, grandparents and students to this annual event and took the young learners on a tour of their new classrooms, after they spent some time playing together on the school’s playground. After introducing herself to the students, Mrs. Farrell read “The Little Rabbit Who Liked to Say Moo” to each class, and provided refreshing snacks along with an opportunity to work on an arts and crafts project.

These districtwide kindergarten playdates are offered in an effort to allow students to forge new friendships and create a welcoming environment so they’ll be able to look forward to the first day of school.  

Mrs. Farrell expressed her gratitude toward the members of the Helen B. Duffield PTA who assisted with organizing the fun morning event. 
“Our PTA always does such a nice job welcoming our kindergartners to the school,” she said.

The district wishes best of luck to these students comprising of Connetquot High School’s graduating class of 2032.
